Date Published: February 12, 2014
26 year old Presley Goult's life is anything but ordinary. Her mother abandoned her as a toddler after her father’s death, leaving Presley to be raised by the only family she has left-her uncle Arnold. After years of being away she returns heartbroken and devastated knowing this is the last place she wants to be. Unbeknownst to her, Kadenburg is not your ordinary town. There are secrets that have been kept from Presley for her own good. Will she find out the truth of who she is and the part she will play in the war that is about to erupt before it is too late to save everyone that she loves?
28 year old Lorcan Bamey was Presley's best friend growing up. He has always been there for her when she needed a friend and someone to lean on. Although he has always wanted more from Presley, rules are rules and he was forbidden to express his interest in having a relationship with her. You see, his upbringing was very different from most of the boys in town; the female must make the choice. It is part of Urseth’s law; laws that Presley will soon discover when her uncle finally decides to be honest about their ancestry.
Will Presley accept the truth about Kadenburg, and herself, in time to save her people?
I can assure you that I do not regret my decision. The main character, Presley Goult, was fantastic. Despite all the bad that has been thrown at her, she's one heck of a person. If this story had just focused on her, I'd have been content. Thing is, there's a whole gaggle of awesome in this book.
Despite the captivating storyline and wonderful characters, there are some issues that made it hard for me to be immersed. For one, there's a number of grammar and typo issues. (There's a point where Liam is called Lima, as an example.) Other than that, the story does ramble on a bit and sometimes starts a point without finishing it.
All together, I really did enjoy reading this. It was a fantastic telling of bear shifters versus wolf shifters with some romantic bits in between. I am looking forward to book 2.
